Join us at the KCC for a free K-Cinema screening and social featuring the hit 2013 comedy-drama My Paparotti (파파로티)!
Sang-jin (Han Suk-kyu) was once a promising young singer but is now a cynical high school music teacher after a medical condition ended his performance career. His ordinary life is suddenly rattled when a young gang thug is transferred to his program. Jang-ho (Lee Je-hoon) is a constant headache, but Sang-jin discovers the boy’s secret passion for singing and takes him under his wing. Just as Jang-ho develops a special bond with his mentor and romance blossoms with his classmate Sook-hee (Kang So-ra), his violent past threatens to tear it all away. Can Jang-ho find a way to fulfill his destiny as a world-class singer?
